My fiancee is currently incarcerated and has been for the past three years. He was convicted of some serious charges but remains unsentenced and is being held in the segregation unit of the jail (no interaction with other inmates, only an hour out of his cell a day etc.)
Recently, the psychiatrist started giving him Cyroquil, olanzopine and prozac. Apparently, he was on 2700mg of Cyroquil years ago and was diagnosed as being Shizophrenic. When I asked him about that, he said that he made it up so that he could stay at the Hospital so he told the Doctors that he heard voices etc but insisted that it was just him "playing the system". That was fine - except that things in our relationship are now getting somewhat concerning.
He's constantly accusing me of lying about every little thing. He asks to "verify" what I'm telling him with my Mom (who he knows doesn't live with me) and when I tell him that my Mom is uncomfortable doing that, he gets really upset with me. Says that the only way we can be together is if he can verify what I'm telling him. Last night, my Mom was at my house with some of her friends. He asked to speak with her and I gently told him that I wasn't comfortable going into the living room and interrupting their conversation just so he could say Hi. He absolutely freaked out on me. Said I was lying to him and that I promised I would never lie to him again - when I calmly tried to explain my reasoning to him, he called me a liar and hung up on me.
He's very hypocritical, he demands that things be done exactly when he asks for them. He recently requested information for his case that I sent to his lawyer who sent it to the jail, he launched into a verbal assault almost. Said that I didn't know what I was talking about, I am out to get him etc. We had a huge fight the other night, he told me that all of our relationship problems are my fault and that he did
nothing wrong. I got upset and told him he was mean. He went into some state I've never seen or heard before. I called him mean, he started screaming at me saying that he was being honest and if the things he was saying hurt my feelings it wasn't his problem. Told me that it was disrespectful to speak to him that way. I made the comment "I can be just as mean as you are to mean." He went off! Told me that when this went to court and a jury trial, he would demand the recording to be played and everyone would see that he did nothing wrong? I calmed down and explained that I wasn't going to the Police or anything and he seemed to come back down to reality a little. Since then, he refuses to speak about the fight, still stands by that he did nothing wrong and it was all entirely me. Actually, he's always right. Everyone treats him badly, everyone is acting "weird" and if the way that I do something isn't how he does things, it's wrong or suspicious.
If he's not arguing with me or accusing me of lying, he's really depressed. Not talking, his voice is just flat, no emotion etc.
I've tried to let this go. I've tried talking to my own therapist. I've tried contacting the jail psychiatrist but nothing is working. I don't believe it's depression. What could be wrong with him? Is this really schizophrenia
